American Muslim Entreprenuer Innovates New Orthopedic Prayer Mat, Gets WorldWide Attention

Fairfax, VA, August 15, 2013 –(– While working in the mall years ago, Kamran Hakimi would remember how he would take his usual five minute break to pray his afternoon prayers. Initially, his daily routine was to find a flattened cardboard box to put his thin prayer rug for more cusion due to concrete floors and to lessen the pain on his joints while he prayed. He would have to repeat this process every day. To make matters worse, the night janitor would come and scoop the card boards up for recycle. Kamran realised he needed something more practical for every day use. He searched the internet to try to find the perfect cushioned prayer rug. To his surprise, there weren’t many selections in what he wawnted and when Kamran found something similar the cost was way above his budget.

One day while working out at his gym, Kamran realized his solution was in front of him all along; he would be sitting on it during his stretching exercise. It was the comfortable cushioned PVC material made from yoga mats. His family loved the notion and informed him the Sajda Salat Mat was also medically useful for orthopedic purposes. With idea and concept in hand, Kamran worked on many prototypes before finally coming up with the perfect dimensions and starting his company Sajda Salat Mats. Within weeks his first batch of prayer mats were quickly sold out. One of the key highlights of Sajda Salat Mats was the ultimate comfort due to the thick foam material that allowed you sit on your knees for longer duration’s. In additional, some of the other benefitsof the Sajda Salat Mat could be used in all weather conditions since it was waterproof, easy to carry with you anywhere, and didn’t attract too much dust. Customers purchased the Sajda Salat Mats because they found it eco-friendly to wash and wipe down unlike the traditional prayer rugs which took laborious work to wash. With only word to mouth advertising, the launch of Sajda Salat Mats has been a success in the U.S. market. “I believe that one should be able to pray at any time without being restricted to discomfort. The Sajda Mat provides new technology, orthopedic comfort and portability to Muslimsaround the world. What I have created was from inspiration and I would like to share it with all my Muslim brothers and sisters, so we have no excuse to miss a prayer.”

Many people who have purchased Sajda Salat Mats said it helped bring relief to their joints inside their homes due to hardwood floors, especially their knees and ankles. In additional, Sajda Salat Mats has caught the attention of private investors who wish to launch franchise wholesale disbutorships internationally to countries such as the U.A.E, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, and Turkey starting in 2014. Sajda Salat Mats will be debuting at ISNA’s 50th Annual Convention in DC this Labor Day weekened. To learn more about the Sajda Salat Mat visit their website
